RareCoordinator (v5.4.1-4)

Welcome to RareCoordinator

The main purpose of this addon is to keep track of the rare spawns on the Timeless Isle.

Please create a ticket for bugs / enhancement ideas: Ticket tracker



  • Only visible on the Timeless Isle
  • Communicates with everyone of your faction on your realm to keep the data updated
  • As soon as you get on the Isle it will update itself
  • When you get a "rare alive" message a sound message will inform you
  • If you have TomTom installed an Arrow will guide you to the rare
  • Click on the "alive" message to announce the rare spawn in the General Chat

Where does it get the data?

  • As soon as you or someone on your faction with the addon target a rare mob the addon updates the "last seen" message
  • If a rare mob is killed and anyone with the addon is near, the "last killed" message gets updated

ToDo List

  • Improve Options (Let the user choose the rares to track)
  • Add a fallback if the addon can't get the initial data

Please read the ToDo List above before requesting a feature which is already on there!

    Why have we removed the coordinates from the public messages? People not using the addon see the unhelpful messages like "varied spawn in/around the forest/west coast" or "swims around the island" and then ask questions. The purpose of this style of addon should be to provide less vague information to non-addon users.

    Luckily I haven't run into the "someone set a password on the addon channel" issue myself, but I thought of one naive option you might try. Players are limited to 10 channels so the griefer cannot ruin too many channels at once. If you simply use a backup system where the addon attempts to join RareCoordinator1 then 2 if that doesn't work then 3 etc until it finds an open channel, would that not avoid the trouble? Even with multiple griefers working together to lock out as many channels as possible, I see no reason the addon couldn't quickly try hundreds of them until it gets to a good one! It could also periodically "rescan" the possible channels so that if a lower one is vacated, it drops down to that one to avoid duplication.

    Just wanted to let you know I wrote a macro to pick a random person in the addon's channel and SendAddonMessage them for an update. This way if the channel owner is giving bad data it will bypass them. It can also be used if for some reason the addon does not request data on its own, for instance I sometimes use it if I have to reload my UI on the Timeless Isle.

    I posted the macro code in the comments on the RC curse page. It's relatively quick and dirty (and compressed to fit under 255) but I've used it with success for a few weeks now. I think it's helpful for your users until you have time to build that feature in yourself, but let me know if you'd prefer I delete the comment.

    Thanks for the addon!

    Love the addon, but hit the resize button and now it's HUGE, and the button to resize it is somewhere off the screen with no way to scroll down. Tried deleting and reloading it, but no luck. :( Sad me. I love this addon.

    I moved my addon to far to the right and left it unlocked but when i next relogged the window had locked itself and I cannot now move it or unlock it because the unlock button is off the screen. How do I reset this to its default settings, deleting the addon annd reinstalling it did not work
